Diver Saved His Diving Partner From A Potential Tiger Shark Attack

This vigilant diver intervened in the nick of time, stepping in the prevent a potential shark attack after a fellow diver made the fatal error of turning his back on the creature.

Conducting a tour of Tiger Beach in the Bahamas, diving instructor Eli Martinez had come to the end of his session when fellow diver, Joe Wong, began retreating back to the boat.

Still surrounded by a number of hefty tiger sharks, inexplicably Joe abandons basic shark-diving practice by turning his back on one of the 1000-pound beasts – named Hook – who makes an opportunistic swoop towards him, jaws agape.

Selflessly launching himself into the shark’s path, Eli grabs Hook by the nose and pushes her away from Joe, preventing a potentially fatal incident.
